As followers of the filmmaker know, David Fincher likes to have input on every aspect of films, including the marketing, and that has been true of his upcoming "Gone Girl." Back in January, Fincher snapped the EW cover photo featuring the stars of the film, Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, and he's once again played shutterbug for another magazine front.

As followers of the filmmaker know, David Fincher likes to have input on every aspect of films, including the marketing, and that has been true of his upcoming "Gone Girl." Back in January, Fincher snapped the EW cover photo featuring the stars of the film, Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike, and he's once again played shutterbug for another magazine front.

Pike graces the cover of the latest issue of W Magazine, and Fincher is man behind the striking image. The director also explained to the magazine why the actress was right for the lead role in his film. “I liked that people didn’t immediately know who Rosamund was,” he said, adding: “I’d always liked Rosamund in movies, but I didn’t really know her. That made her very interesting.”

For Pike, it was a chance to play a character with some real complexity. “In [the play] 'Hitchcock Blonde,' I had to do a 10-minute nude scene,” she said. “Apart from some high heels, I was completely bare onstage. The play was about the male gaze, male expectations, and, finally, female power and the lack thereof. This girl had dark secrets, but she also wanted to be adored. Until Amy, I don’t know that I’d ever seen that combination in a character.”

We'll see how it all comes together when "Gone Girl" opens on October 3rd. Check out the cover below.
